Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went in unsure of what to expect but we spent a good hour to 90mins just wandering the isles and checking out what was on offer. There is a mix of collectables, old, new, games, books, clothes, food art and so much more. It felt like it was going to be busy going on the car park but once you get in there was heaps of space. There are a number of staff around willing to help, and if they see you carrying a few things they will gladly take it up to the front counter so you can keep wandering. Even if you don’t buy anything it is fun just to walk around. The parking is free and there is toilets and a cafe onsite

Well worth a visit. Many different stalls under one roof. Many retro items well displayed also some new items. A place where you could find almost any retro item your looking for. There is also a cafe onsite.

以為是古董店, 但很多東西不貴,也沒有標明年份, 但明碼實價, 隨遊人喜歡挑。想不到很大, 可以從中了解這小鎮的風光。也有不少有趣的舊物。黑膠碟發燒友一定找到心頭愛。我起碼見到三部完整的舊式英文打字機,買二百元澳幣左右,

I visit the Mill Market about once a month locally (Geelong) and the two further away a couple of times a year. I rarely don't find something I want and have been looking for and have taken a son who was rapt in the branded retro clothes in his size and he walked out with his arms full at Daylesford recently. Great for those of us who like to find those little things to add to a collection or love the idea of recycling instead of buying new. I know what I am looking for and the price range I would be interested in paying and a couple of times I have asked for the owner of the stall to be contacted to see if they will shift on the price and I have happily had my fair and reasonable price accepted for the items. Try not to rush through, there are layers.

So glad you found all the goods you were after, and at such a reasonable price. It's true, that it's best to take your time searching through all the treasures! Look forward to having you back again!

I walked in for my first visit to the famous Mill Markets, only to find a basket full of *golliwog* dolls at the store entrance. Attempted to politely inform the manager and staff of the racist history, offensive, and triggering nature of these items but was met with contempt and outright resistance from the manager who refused to remove them, while fully accepting that these items were racist. I am shocked that in 2022, some people refuse to acknowledge their complicity in upholding harmful and racist ideologies. Will be sharing my experience with everyone and hope that these people in Daylesford one day learn how much damage and hurt they are causing.

Hi, Thanks for your message. It's true at their time of manufacture Golli dolls where not made in the best of taste and at a time when many where not concerned about these racial stereotypes that were being upheld. I understand your distress. While the dolls have a nostalgic appeal to some, there have been calls for a "difficult conversation" to be had about the golliwog's place in modern Australia. If we cannot remove these items from world, I hope they can at least spark conversation about change.

Not very wheelchair friendly / which would also mean prams couldn’t fit
I brang a client here in a wheelchair and felt so bad we couldn’t look in so many stalls - what we could see was lovely though
The cafe was average - super noisy and food just OK and for $16 for a pie and coffee I expected more

Hello there, Thanks for your review. As the buildings are not owned by us only leased, It does make it difficult to undertake appropriate renovations. But we are having conversations about different access possibilities. So we appreciate your feedback Also maybe try the cafe again, you might be surprised.

My Uncle and I met in Daylesford for lunch... and after spending time at the Convent for hours, he turned to me and said..."So what else is Daylesford hiding?" . It turns out that in all the years that he had been coming to Daylesford, he had never really left the Main Street going through town. I suggested the mills and he told me that I had the town wrong that they were in Castlemaine ( we had visited them in 2021). I laughed and said, "not exactly"... so off we went.

The Mills have car parking at them and it was well utilised- I imagine on their busy days that it would overflow. It is a fairly modern building. There is also a cafe at the Mills. There is no entry fee.

It's a place of wonderland when you enter as you enjoy a visual feast of knick knacks, thingamajigs, whatchamacallits, gizmos, doohickeys, thingamabobs and doohickeys. It is a mix of old and new, shiny and rusty, bizarre and normal, quirky and conventional, tacky and tasteful.

You can spend as much, or as little time as you like at the mills... and they will speak to each individual differently... we both left with greeting cards- they offered an interest variety. Staff here are great- really friendly and interactive.

A collection of many stalls under one roof with an eclectic mix of old and new goods. Can look for a bargain or something out of the ordinary.
